Newly Completed Work...

Tonight I finished "Rustic Moroccan Mystique". All I have to do now is paint the sides of the canvas, sign it, varnish it and add the hanging hooks and wire. I'm planning on doing some more paintings and then creating a shop on to try and sell it. Fun times ahead, I'm sure. Paula xo

Stage Two is Complete...

I'm relieved that this stage of my painting - "Rustic Moroccan Mystique" - is done as I'm keen to get onto the detail tomorrow and include some vibrant Moroccan colours! I never thought painting could be so rewarding, but it is! Paula xo

Rustic Moroccan Mystique...

Today I took some time out at lunch and sat in the campus library with an African art book. I love African art but I never thought I'd feel a kinship with Moroccan art like I did today. I was drawn to the colours and patterns. It proved to be the style and colours from my previous work in progress that will be revealed soon.
For today though, this is what my musing came up with ... "Rustic Moroccan Mystique". A painting from a sketch that was taken from a photo of a vibrant Moroccan tile today. I'm looking forward to session two with this painting. Once done then the vibrant colours can be added. I can't wait! I'm hoping that this painting may just be my first sold item. Here's hoping!
